Specialty Glass Artist-in-Residence Karen LaMo…

Specialty Glass Artist-in-Residence Karen LaMonte was here at Corning Incorporated’s flagship Research & Development lab for the first working week of her residency. She explored her options with several novel high-tech glasses, including hot casting bioglass-ceramics into graphite molds. The glass shown here is designed for making bone and tooth implants, and the mold, provided by Karen, was based on a 3D scan of a live model. She’ll be back for the second of four week-long visits later this summer.
